An inspiring code

توقفت عن التفكير كمبرمج في تلك المرحلة وعدت إلى التفكير كفيزيائي. لقد أذهلني كيف يمكننا محاكاة الظواهر الفيزيائية ببضعة أسطر من التعليمات البرمجية.

These lines portray a tale of creation and vanishing. It describes the creation of a photon, its subsequent disappearance when an electron absorbs it on the cathode plate’s surface, the subsequent departure of the electron from the cathode, and lastly the eventual disappearance of the electron when it reaches the other plate and captured.

A New Publication Based on The Virtual Oscilloscope Simulation

Virtual Oscilloscope

The paper: Using a web-based and stand-alone oscilloscope for physics experiment during Covid-19 pandemic, Mahizah Ismail et al (2023),  Phys. Educ. 58 015006, is based on the Virtual Oscilloscope simulation. This paper was authored by Mahizah Ismail, Farid Minawi, Wan Zul Adli Wan Mokhtar, Noraihan L Abdul Rashid and Ahmad K Ariffin.

Area Model of Partial Products

Area Model of Partial Products

Elementary math teachers know the importance of this model in teaching the concept of applying distributive property in area model.
The idea is to break one large area (which represents the product of two numbers) into several pieces (products of smaller numbers), then to find the areas of the pieces individually, and finally add to get the area of the whole (the product of the given numbers).

Long Division Simulation – Remainder

Long division simulation - remainder

If you or your student or child are having difficulties in learning long division, then you will find this simulation comprehensive and instructional, that guides the learner through the process step by step. This application is for long division with remainder. Another application on long division with float quotient is also available in the simulations section.

Phase Difference Between Sound Waves Simulation

Phase Difference Between Sound Waves Simulation

With this rich simulation, you can visualize and measure the phase difference between two sound waves using two microphones connected to an oscilloscope. Moreover, you can determine the speed of sound in air by measuring the distance between the two microphones when their waveforms are in phase, taking into account the frequency of the sound wave that is controlled by the sine wave generator.

Photoelectric Effect Experiment Simulation

Photoelectric effect simulation

With this comprehensive and realistic-like photoelectric effect experiment simulation, you will be able to illustrate the following:
The variations of the photocurrent versus potential.
The variations of the photocurrent versus light intensity.
The variation of the kinetic energy of the ejected electrons versus the incident light frequency.
It comes with a graph where you can trace each type of variation as you vary the parameters of the experiment.
Plus, you can experiment and discover more with this simulation.
